Reviews of BS in Travel Management graduates:


list bulletWhy did I choose Travel Management: Actually, it was not my first choice. I was also forced to take it because my family told me so.

list bulletAbout my college education: Studying BS TM or any other coarse is a lot of fun especially if that's what you really wanted. Every subjects will be exciting; every assignments is worth waking late up at night; every projects is thrilling; and every exams is easy to pass without even cheating. I was not that studious when I was in college but I made sure that I will pass every unit I took. It could have been enjoyable if Only I had enough money to support my domestic tours and international tours as well. So if you're just like me... A not so rich kid, I would suggest that you must learn to earn money while studying if your parents/family can't provide finances for you. You must also learn to stand on your own because there a lot of times that you have to travel alone or with a group... You have to learn how to commute and learn how to ask people if you're lost. And... You must always look good wherever you go! :)

list bulletMy current job: I'm now working in a Travel Insurance Company.
I issue insurance policies particularly domestic area, and sometimes, international area. I also issue certification that is needed in applying for visa.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: Yes, especially the area codes, airport codes.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: I took me, I think, less than 3 months after my graduation to find a job.

list bulletDo I recommend studying Travel Management: Yes, because tourism industry is one of the fastest growing industry.

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: Ready yourself for finances. Make sure you really wanted it! Make sure you see yourself in the future pursuing career related in this course.
